The story centers on Irving, a typical young adult popost-college undervalued, overwhelmed with bills, and struggling to find work that fits his “passion.” Despite his degree, he ends up working at a health food store in Venice Beach, embarking on a journey of spiritual enlightenment & self-discovery to figure out his life.

Dawson wanted to share his own spiritual journey through a portrait of a young black man we don’t often see represented in media. “Irving is not a rapper, baller, or a thug, but a college educated millennial ‘average joe’. His ‘normalcy’ is what makes him so relatable and realistic,” Dawson says. This past week, A Whole New Irving screened at the International Academy of Web Television Awards and won Best Lead Actor and Best Ensemble Cast in a Comedy.
